Busta Rhymes has reportedly changed the title of his upcoming solo album, The Chemo.
According to producer Swizz Beatz, the project may have undergone a name change.
“I think Busta changed the title from The Chemo but I swear to you, this album is crazy,” Beatz promised in an interview. “It’s not, no, no, no, it’s crazy. I was impressed, I’m not even gonna lie. I went into the studio expecting to hear something else and I heard something else, back to back.” (Rap-Up TV)
Last month, R&B singer Robin Thicke said he was recruited by Busta to appear on the album.
“I did a record with Busta for his new album,” Thicke said in an interview. “We went in the studio and Busta and I worked together. Busta is very top secret–NASA, CIA, don’t tell nobody nothing, don’t play nobody nothing, so I probably shouldn’t have even said that. He’s probably sending somebody here right now to beat me up.” (Rap-Up)
The rapper has been keeping fans updated on the LP’s status via his popular Twitter page.
“RT @THEREALSWIZZZ: The Iron Man song is done much love to Busta for taking it to the next level hit him up and (cont)http://tl.gd/ompb5,” he wrote yesterday. “@Cappadonna Where u at sis???I need u in the studio now….” (Busta Rhymes’ Twitter)
He recently explained his motivation for naming the album Chemo.
“I called the album The Chemo because it seems like the industry and music overall is dying slowly,” Busta explained in an interview. “The cancer that’s stricken the business is killing the music, not only from a business standpoint, but also the value of the content and the creativity behind it. I just want to start the first stage of chemotherapy treatment that needs to take place and hopefully inspire others to do their part and contribute to different stages of the cure.” (Billboard)
